Doucheclown. I've yet to come across that one. I like where you're trying to go with it, but it just doesn't roll off the tongue. It almost makes docuhing sound like, well, fun. Unless you're scared of clowns. Then it wouldn't be much fun at all.

That no talent douche-clown!

These talentless neckfarking dickchickens deserve to be sent to the Dethklok Home For Wayward Kitties.

Awesome. Two millionnaires arguing over which one is more "real". It's a vitally important debate, I'm sure.

The preferred order of douche is as follows (from most offensive to merely offensive):

The Killers are one of those bands that believes the more they talk about what a great band they are, the more people will be fooled into thinking they are indeed good.
2006-10-14 12:20:51 PM  
Flowers is a Douchestain.

/Neo-Post Punk is the stupidest term ever.
//Real Post Punk ended around 86.

I liked their first record, but the second one sucks.

Trend-setters are clucking and nodding their heads favorably for "douchemop."

I finally got to see/hear the Killers when they were on SNL recently. Have to say I was disappointed...disappointed it took me 30 seconds to change the channel to anything else until they were done performing.

I saw The Killers on SNL as well and they sucked - in my opinion.

Whenever my hubby and I are in the car and Green Day comes on - they always have that one hook that is in every damn song. I always sing "My songs all sound the-ahh same!"

/stupid fact about me:-P

mialyneb, you resemble Kate Hudson

other than I work for Green Day...

-no I don't-but I still wonder how long 'til Billy Joe gets the "Sellout rock star, kick him!" schtick on Gilman St
2006-10-14 12:54:46 PM  
I'm glad other people agree that The Killers are garbage. And Green Day.. well let's not even go there.
2006-10-14 12:54:55 PM  
OMGZFGIB...a punk (well, used to be) band criticizing teh America?!? EVERYBODY PANIC.
2006-10-14 12:55:03 PM  
the joy division rip-offs will be lucky to have 1/10th the staying power of the sex pistols rip-offs.

If you're complaining about a bunch of "overpaid talentless musicians" whose music is "derivative drivel", guess what? You're officially old.

//no talent b*tch

I dare you to defend The Killers. DARE YOU.
2006-10-14 01:16:10 PM  
the killers need to go away.


And I enjoyed Green Day a lot more when I was 17 (that was 1994 for those scoring at home)

And, finally, is it just me or is that the most horribly written headline to go green so far today?

Bah on The Killers and Green Day. I'm old and get off my lawn and all that good stuff

However, you all should see the Secret Machines if you get the chance

sharkeyca: I dare you to defend The Killers. DARE YOU.

If they've "convinced" a demographic group to buy their albums... more power to them.

It's the buyers of said albums with whom you should have issues to discuss.

I hear that all the time! Her and Sarah Chalke from Scrubs.

2006-10-14 02:17:41 PM  
robert smith and ian curtis both have (or in ian's case had) more talent in their pinky finger than both of those douchebags combined

The Killers first album was Killer.

This new album reeks of cocaine induced self importance.

But thats ok, I am not one of those people that thinks there is anything wrong with producing just one great album per lifetime.

But seriously Brandon, pull your head out. Look at P-Duddy for an example of someone who thinks making lots of money means they are a musical genius.

Give me Jenny Lewis and the twins anyday.

Dr. Farkenstein: Trend-setters are clucking and nodding their heads favorably for "douchemop."


...I read "/mmmbop" and now I have that stupid song going through my head...curse you, Dr. Farkenstein!

So I don't hold either band in very high regard, although I have liked GD's music and local presence for many years.

The Killers are shiatty. No doubt about that.

But I think this guy raises a very good point.. and it has little to do with politics. Moreso with nationality...
2006-10-14 05:02:20 PM  
Having seen both live, on a pure performance basis, Green Day gives a way better show than the killers. They just kinda... stand there... Green Day has endless energy, talk between songs, give away guitars to people who volunteer to play on stage... awesome.
2006-10-14 05:03:54 PM  
I guess I'm a tradishonalist, but I prefer Douchebag. It just rolls off the touge so easily, and is also very easy to just shout out in a moment of anger.

That said I have a growing fondness for Douchenozzle....

No suck is suck, no matter how young you are.

Bill Hicks: The Beatles were so high they let Ringo sing a couple of tunes. Tell me they weren't paryting, 'We all live in a yellow submarine' We all live in a....yell ....I've never been that high. When I was having the pyramids build the UFO dream...trip... that farkin yellow submarine trip was on the horizon. When I was having Jesus flying around on a unicorn I could barely make out the periscope of the yellow submarine. 'What's that way farkin out there?' Past the UFOS, passed the Pyramids, passed Jesus on a unicorn, passed the fish: its a farkin yellow submarine. I'm not that high yet. Who's that walking out to it with the big nose and the bad haircut? Thats farkin Ringo! Can you imagine how high he is right now! fark! I want that Ringo shiat. And these other musicians today who don't do drugs and in fact speak out against them? Boy, do they suck! What a coincidence! Ball-less, souless, spiritless corporate little biatches, suckers of Satan's cock, each and every one of them. Gnorr. "We're rock stars against drugs cos that's what the President wants." Aw, suck Satan's cock. That's what we want isn't it, government approved rock n roll? Whooh, we're partying now! "We're rock stars who do Pepsi Cola commercials." Gnorr. Suck Satan's cock. Put that big scaly pecker down your gullet. Drink that black worm jism. Drink it! Fill your little bellies. Ha ha ha. Send in Vanilla Ice. Hello Vanilla. Says here on your application, you have no talent, and yet you want to be a star. I think something can be arranged. Whuh. Suck Satan's cock. Gnoor. I will lower the standards of the earth. I will put 56 channels of American Gladiators on every TV. I will put all the money in the hands of 14 year old girls. They will think you are charismatic, deep and edgy. GnnooOOooOor. Send in MC Hammer on your way out.

Confusing submitter criticizes confusing music dorks for being posers. Because you know, submitter proudly served Fark by writing confusing headlines while stating the obvious.

Flowers is a french shower bag!

Meh, I'm still enjoying the new Killers album. I tend to find it easier to enjoy music when you don't give a shat what the musicians say at any time other than when they are singing.
2006-10-16 03:40:51 PM  
as much as i dislike both bands, i have to agree with brandon flowers on this one.
